SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 08/02/11 -- Regulations pertaining to consumer products shift as often as the tides of California's beaches, and manufacturers, sellers and distributors of consumer products need up-to-date information in order to avoid penalties and lawsuits.
Leading California law firm Allen Matkins Leck Gamble Mallory & Natsis LLP announces the launch of California Consumer Product Health, Safety and Environmental Regulations, an important new blog for those seeking timely commentary, news and insight regarding the regulation of consumer products in California.
California Consumer Product Health, Safety and Environmental Regulations (calconsumerproductlaw.com) is edited by Eileen Nottoli, an attorney with the San Francisco office of Allen Matkins, who practices in the area of environmental law with a focus on advising clients on compliance and transactions as well as representing clients in administrative enforcement and civil litigation. She has written articles that have been published in Product Liability Law & Strategy, Chemical Engineering and News, Pesticide Toxic Chemical News, and Packaging Design, among others.
'The blog provides perspective on health, safety and environmental regulations regarding consumer products throughout California and the nation,' said Nottoli, a prolific writer who has contributed many posts to the blog in anticipation of its launch. 'As new theories of how regulations apply to everything from children's shoes to dog toys to telephone cords, those who make, sell or market consumer products in California will benefit from keeping on top of the latest developments on the regulatory landscape.'
Nottoli is uniquely qualified with her Ph.D. in chemistry and has extensive expertise in state and federal regulatory programs governing exposures to toxins including Proposition 65, and managing hazardous materials (including emergency release reporting), hazardous wastes (including mining wastes and recycled materials), toxic air emissions, mold, wastewater, storm water, asbestos, lead, PCBs, wastewater recycling, and worker exposure. She has managed numerous environmental investigations and remediations for site contamination and mold and indoor air quality of buildings. She has managed corporate and real estate environmental due diligence in purchases, mergers, and acquisitions for developers, sellers, buyers and lenders. In addition, she has prepared environmental compliance handbooks and compliance programs for clients. She has also managed human health risk assessments and developed compliance strategies.
